I wrote two posts at the Reader about this process, with lots more pictures; you can read them here and here. If you’re interested in going to one, email club@sundaydinnerclub.com

(18:31) Afterwards, Josh Kulp of SDC and I talk a little about the Alinea Baby fuss. I wrote about it, less as a serious incident than as a social media sensation/goof, here.

(23:48) Next I talk to Adam Shprintzen, author of The Vegetarian Crusade:
